Sun Life Cycle at BGC
(The Philippine Star) - November 23, 2019 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — Over a thousand bikers of all ages and skill levels set off for another fun ride with a cycling legend and a number of celebrities/sportsmen as the Sun Life Cycle PH gets going today at Bonifacio Global City in Taguig.

Former three-time Tour de France green jersey winner Robbie McEwen, who has seen the big improvement in the local cycling scene being a visitor the last six years, joins regular triathlon campaigners Piolo Pascual and Matteo Guidicelli in the non-competitive event which features the kids ride, short ride (20K) and long ride (40K) categories around Taguig, Makati, Manila and Pasay.

“The Sun Life Cycle PH is getting bigger and better every year. I have watched the event grow and involve so many people from as young as two-years-old to serious elite cyclists, families and 60+ years-old,” said McEwen, an Australian cycling legend and Olympiad veteran during yesterday’s launch of the event put up by Sun Life Financial Philippines and organized by Sunrise Events, Inc., now part of the IRONMAN Group.

“This year, we have a large number of riders from PH Police, Army, Navy and Traffic Enforcement taking part in the 20km and 40km rides. The highlight, however, is always the kids ride on the closed circuit so they can get active and discover a love for biking,” he added.

The event includes the tricycle ride (100-m distance for two-to three-year-olds), kids’ ride (500-m for 4-5 years), the family ride (30-minute ride for 6-15 with adult companion) and the solo ride (30-minute ride for 6-15).

McEwen, Pascual and Guidicelli, along with the other Star Magic artists, will see action in the long distance ride (40-km for 10 and above).
